WATCH: Veteran injured by IED protests Omar Khadr settlement outside Liberal MP's office

StaffRebel Columnist

North Bay veteran Mike McNeil was injured in Afghanistan by an improvised explosive device (IED) – the kind of bomb terrorist turned millionaire Omar Khadr was building for Al-Qaeda.

Like most Canadians, McNeil was upset over Justin Trudeau's $10.5 payout to Omar Khadr and took out his frustrations by protesting outside of Liberal MP Anthony Rota's office.



McNeil explains in great deal about what he went through, still goes through, and dismisses the media party narrative of Khadr being a “child soldier”.

While Rota and McNeil never met face-to-face due to scheduling conflicts, the Liberal MP did talk to Cogeco and made the issue about veterans suffering from PTSD rather than the money given to the terrorist.

Give the video a watch and let us know in the comments what you think.

ATOKENCONSERVATIVE, Liberals only stutter when they’re lying.

Michael Scanlan, our vets have to fight for benefits and services; this is shameful!

Well said Tammie and Liza. What about our Vets? Scum bag lieberals !

That MP, wow, obviously a graduate of the Trudeau school of saying nothing while making the listener feel like you’ve said something. Is there any way this veteran can get on mainstream media? That stutter is gold, marketing wise. Left wingers operate on feels, and this guy’s talking really hits the high notes. I’d like to see him debate Goodale. By the end all anyone would remember is Goodale’s stutter.

While we circle the drain and worry about accommodating trannies in our military, America is doing this!

Make America Great again video. Not the greatest voice but makes up for it in spades.
What strikes me the most about this video is that in all the portraits of smiling Americans, there is not one burqa and not one niqab! Because it’s clearly not American. Duh!

Canada is so far off the tracks, and with idiot zombie piggies like Rota who are so careful to parrot the party line for fear of losing their place at the trough, things are not looking good. Where is this mans humanity gone?
What he said was a blatant insult to Mike McNeil. Mike deserves an apology and then some.
Rota should resign.

To Anthony Rota:

Typical – avoid the topic and move on.

I bet you are enjoying the good life.

What a POS you are – if you had a heart attack right in front of me I would watch you quiver and die before I lifted a finger to help you.

Canadian Mongrel, you raise an excellent point.

Should not the Royal Canadian Legion be taking a stand on this insult of a Vet by a no-mind LPC member?

Maybe the recent CFA vets need to do like the Aussie vets of Vietnam and say fuck the legion, because they do not represent them, and form their own Veterans group. In Oz the Vietnam Nam association became the dominant group of Vets.

Jan G, excellent comments & message to the coward Rota.

I also copied Andrew Scheer, my Conservative MP and the mindless hairdo.

Dear MP Rota,

I just watched the interview you gave to COGECO.

Imagine my surprise when you sidestepped the real issue and decided to misrepresent this injured vet, and diagnose him with PTSD. Claiming mental health reasons for anger, etc… He was holding a protest outside your office. He is angry with the multi-million dollar secret settlement the Liberals gave a convicted terrorist. This greatly angers 71% of Canadians.

Mike McNeil has an acquired brain injury. He acquired it from an IED explosion while serving in the Canadian Military. He was dismantling bombs similar to the ones Omar Khadr was building.

You owe Mike McNeil an apology, and, a meeting for him to directly explain to you why he was outside your office.

If Omar Khadr gets an apology, then so should this veteran.

Your television interview was dishonest and misleading when it comes to why this veteran is upset. I call this a disgrace.

Anthony Rota just spewed the usual Liberal BS.
commented 2017-07-27 13:43:31 -0400
my gall darn ‘enter’ button is just too fast on my laptop! but I think you got my drift in my comment! I was a bit more articulate in my email to Rota (I hope).

Tammie….right on!!
commented 2017-07-27 13:38:26 -0400
I did send Rota the same letter I sent Liberal MP’s across Canada after Khadr payout, he didn’t respond.
commented 2017-07-27 13:38:22 -0400

I just sent an email to Rota telling how dare he he’s not qualified to comment on Mr. McNeil’s injuries and that he is trying to deceive and manipulate the public to believe McNeil is angry and protesting because he has mental health issues. He should apologize to Mr. McNeil and to Canadians.
My last line was: "IF OMAR KHADR GOT AN APOLOGY, THEN GIVE ONE TO MR. MCNEIL!

I cc’d it to Scheer, my MP and the great pm.

I stand with Mike McNeil.
As others have commented Rota is a coward – actions and words confirm this. Write to him, and, demand he give Mike McNeil an apology for calling an acquired brain injury from IED explosion PTSD, and, not giving this vet an opportunity to explain why he feels betrayed by the Liberals for paying Khadr in a secret settlement. 71% of us feel this betrayal!

CAROLE……I AGREE

Why wait for the Speer family lawsuit which has been thrarted. We need a direct lawsuit from Veterans here in Canada against khadr. Split the proceeds with veterans and Speer family.
commented 2017-07-27 13:01:50 -0400
Another scumbag liberal MP, talking as if the vets all have mental problems. This guy was hit on the head because of an IED like Khadr made. Those libranos need to be eliminated.
commented 2017-07-27 12:55:45 -0400
Anthony Rota is slime. Slime! North Bay , throw this dirt bag out. I have never heard such pathetic sidestepping in my whole life….and he was too much of a coward to face the vet. Anthony Rota is a bottom feeder.
What a useless excuse for a human.
